Since I have lived in Utah and am related to a good portion of the state, my
comment is right on. We use volunteers here regularly, but I would be willing
to bet that of those searching very few are volunteers.

do those kinds of things in Canada. I guess you want law enforcement to turn a
blind-eye to all possiable major crimes (unabomber...) that are difficult and
take time.When you are living in the U.S., Utah, and paying WVC
taxes, you may have a right to complain.
We have no idea what they evidence they do or don't have. Just because they
aren't broadcasting every second of everyday doesn't mean that they have
nothing. If this were a relative or a friend would any of you still have the
attitude that it is a waste of time and money? If so, how sad.
I would have rather seen the money/time/efforts spent this past week on the 78
year old West Valley man who was missing on Sunday, than have 125 people search
the desert for someone who has been missing for two years. I hope that old man
is surviving, especially if he has fallen or is wandering.

Slow and steady wins the race...
I agree 100% with MoJules & Sparky908. They have recieved leads, they are
following up on it. And in my opinion, Josh and his Dad's strange comments and
behavior are a sign of nervousness and guilt-knowing the police are figuring
things out. Go West Valley PD!!! We are praying for you to figure
this one out!
I've learned from previous cases that I've watched, from a much closer seat,
that these law enforcement people are really doing quite a bit. I'm going to
sit back and watch and wait. They've got to have a lead of some sort to elevate
this case the way they have. I tend to agree with MoJules, I think the Powells
have brought this one back onto the radar with they're actions. Mix that with
some leads and this thing has become huge. I'm sure the Coxs' are happy with
that, as best as they can at this point.Thank you West Valley PD!
I am sure that they are looking into all cases all the time. They apparently
called off the search for Susan for over a year and a half. I would guess that
they were able to get some leads and such to have them searching this area.
When a mother has been gone for nearly two years and her husband and father in
law do and say things that are very suspect, then it appears to be that a crime
did happen. If Josh and his dad Steve have committed a crime, which at this
point has not been proven, but if they have, then would it not be wise to get
those little boys out of that home as soon as possible?
@Murray19 As much as I agree with your statement, it is because this
case, for whatever reason, has become such a high profile that they are
continuing to look
Another day after almost 22 months and I'm glad they are meeting their goals
each day to cover a certain area. And a man who has been missing for 3 days has
the search called off. Do we know if there was a crime even committed in either
case? Does his family not need closure? I don't like the double standard in WVC
for searching for missing persons or victims.
